Wags 'n Whiskers sneak peek day one!


Whew! We made it to Friday!! Today is day one for sneak peeks of a brand new release over at Wags 'n Whiskers! There will be sneak peeks all weekend, and the release will culminate on Monday with a fun blog hop.  I chose to use this cute new pin up girl called August. These are so much fun, and my daughter has already claimed the cards! LOL! 


As I post this, I see that I need to fix the color on her little body suit. I'm afraid I've kind of made her look like she peed herself. That's not the place to have poor blending! LOL! Papers are Basic Grey and the cardstock is Bazzill. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I used a Martha Stewart border punch as well as her branch punch. The flourish if made with a Magnolia Doohickey die. August is colored with Copic markers
hair: E97, E99, and E17
suit:  YG03, 05, 07, and 67
skin: E11, 00

Please be sure and visit Wags 'n Whiskers challenge blog to see the rest of the fabulous creations from the design team, and we'd love it if you'd play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon!  Hugs!

Ohhh lala! Ok, now that I spit coffee across the table when you said she peed herself... Actually if you had colored her backside like that it might but I don't think she does at all. LOL

LOL! You are so funny my sweet friend! I thought maybe you made her for me...August...my bday month...and you even made her all dressed in green. That's the August color! LOL! She sure is cute though and I would have never thought she peed herself if you hadn't have pointed it out! Hee hee! HUGS!

Melanie said...

Sharon...you NEVER fail to make me laugh right out loud. I probably should avoid drinking my coffee when reading your posts...too funny about the incontinence issue!! For the record though, I didn't think that at all!! This is yet another terrific card.I LOVE the colour scheme and your choice of embellishments is fantastic!

Love the pin up girl & you've truly colored her perfectly ... Now if this was an image of a lady in her 50's I would question the shading but this sweet young chick would never do such a thing !!! You crack me up my friend ... Have a wonderful weekend ...
Hugs, Janie

Will these be available as digital images? Maybe I could afford some if they are. Sure are great! Went to the blog to see the others as well.....

Silly girl. She did NOT pee herself. She merely hasn't been to the salon in awhile, and has purchased a very see-through swim suit. Tsk. ;)

GORGEOUS card! Really!!!

I love all these hot to trot mamas!
Sharon, when I was a small child, my Mother made my paper dolls and her figures looked a lot like these ladies. All from the 40's - these cards are so much fun.
